A good crisp is one of my favorite desserts. I just love how a sweet oat topping tastes on top of baked fruit, especially with ice-cream on top! So so good!

Some of my favorite crisp recipes include this Strawberry Crisp, this Nectarine Peach Crisp, and this Apple Crisp. YUM.

And now I am happy to be adding this cranberry pear crisp recipe to the mix.

Ingredients needed to make this Pear Cranberry Oatmeal Crisp:

  • pears
  • fresh cranberries
  • tapioca flour
  • lemon juice
  • maple syrup
  • cinnamon
  • coconut sugar
  • almond flour
  • rolled oats
  • nutmeg
  • olive oil

Ingredient Swaps:

For the fresh cranberries: you can use frozen cranberries.

For the tapioca flour: you can use arrowroot flour or cornstarch instead.

For the maple syrup: feel free to use honey, but keep in mind then the recipe won’t be Vegan. You can also use date syrup as well.

For the coconut sugar: you can always use brown sugar instead of coconut sugar.

For the almond flour: you can use pecan flour, cashew flour, macadamia nut flour, sunflower seed flour, or oat flour. I haven’t tried other nut flours because I am allergic but let me know if you do! I know many people make their own nut flours, for example, this recipe shows how you can make your own pecan flour from pecans.

For the olive oil: you can use coconut oil, avocado oil, or any light flavored oil of your choice.
